New York Jets players and members of the organization ripped backup quarterback Tim Tebow in a report in Wednesday's New York Daily News, saying simply, "he's terrible."  More than a dozen players and members of the Jets spoke to the New York Daily News about Mark Sanchez remaining the teams starting quarterback over Tebow, despite the team having a 3-6 record, and a starting quarterback who completes a league low 52% of his passes and a league-high four red-zone interceptions.    Sanchez's biggest supporter is left guard Matt Slauson, who says without a doubt Sanchez is the best signal caller on the team. “It’s not even close,” Slauson said. “All the other quarterbacks know it. I have all the confidence in Mark. We don’t really have a choice."  When asked about the other quarterbacks on the depth chart, Slauson says, “We have Greg [McElroy] . . . and we have an athlete.” Members of the organization told the the paper they believe the only way Tebow starts is if Sanchez has a total collapse. “It would take extreme poor play. . . . like a five-interception game,” said a prominent member of the organization. “Something where it was just ridiculous. It would take Mark to totally just sh-- the bed and become unglued (before there was a quarterback change).” The Jets say Sanchez's poor performance on the field has to do with the quality of players he's surrounded by. “Look at some of the players he’s throwing to,” a Jets official said. “It’s garbage.” Said another Jets source: “I’ve seen better receiving corps in college than we have on our team.” So, who wants Tebow to be the starter? “Nobody,” a member of the team said. To most memebrs of the Jets organization, Tebow is just a specialty player that lacks the needed skills to be a starting quarterback in the NFL.
